Despite The Hunger Games, Liam Hemsworth hasn’t quite got the fame of his brother Chris. He’s working on it though, with the Hunger Games sequels coming, as well as the thriller Paranoia, which is due in cinemas soon. Now we get our first look at another one of his movies, Cut Bank, where we can see him standing in a field (and unlike most of the other images of him that get released, in this one he’s wearing a shirt!).
Although it may not look like it, the film is actually a sci-fi flick. It follows Dwayne McLaren (Hemsworth ) a high school star athlete recently turned auto mechanic, who dreams of getting out of tiny town on Cut Bank, the coldest town in America, and whisking his pageant-hopeful girlfriend, Cassandra (Teresa Palmer), away to the big city.
However, his plan to leave sets in motion a deadly series of events and thrusts him into a police investigation headed by Sheriff Vogel (John Malkovich), the protector of Cut Bank and the closest thing Dwayne has to a father figure. Panic sweeps across the community in mere hours, but things are not what they seem. Cassandra’s father, Big Stan Steeley (Billy Bob Thornton), is the only one who seems to realise this. However, the damage is already done and the events that unfold change Dwayne’s life, and the life of the town, forever.
The film’s due out next year.
